     One of Liberia's leading professional players, Frank "Jaen" Seator, has dispelled rumors that he and his family were expelled from Qatar because of dress code.

     Making the clarification in a telephone conversation with our Sports Desk recently, player Seator said he was disappointed to have heard that there was a newspaper article indicating that he and his family were expelled from Qatar. "The paper carried the article without contacting me while in the country."

     He said for five years, he and his family lived in Qatar without any problem. He disclosed that after his contract with Al Ta-awon ended, his manager told him there was a another contract in the making for him in another country. "That is why I was in Liberia awaiting on my manager for signal before I could leave the country."

     Commenting further in a serious mood, player Seator frowned on the paper for such an article aimed at tarnishing he and his family reputation.

     Meanwhile, Seator has called on the paper to retract the article to avoid any confrontation. "I respect the media in Liberia because they have played a key role in promoting my career. I don't want any problem between they and myself because we need each other."

     In another development, player Seator has disclosed that he is presently in Italy justifying his inclusion on Serie B side Regianna. Regianna was in the Serie A recently before being relegated.

    Several African players including Nigeria's Sunday Oliseh and Sierra Leone's Mohammed Kallon have played for the club before.

    According to player Seator, if all goes well he will join the club at mid season. But he was quick to point out that he could be loaned to North Africa, specifically Esperence of Tunisia, where he will play for some time before returning to Italy.

      Seator was invited to play for the National football team, the Lone Star, for the African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Guinea in September. After the match he was not called for the match against Niger for what the coaches termed "lack of form".

      The player stayed in Liberia for some time before going to Italy based on arrangement concluded by his Manager. Seator has been playing professional since 1995 beginning from Kuwait. He also played in Saudi Arabia, Hungary and Sweden.

    Seator was part of the Lone Star squad that participated in the 2002 African Nations Cup finals held in Mali.
